A motorist who hit speeds close to 180km/h in one of a series of police pursuits on the Border separated by a two-year jail stint in Western Australia has been put away for another two years.
Magistrate Rodney Brender said there was "not a lot of room for leniency" with such inherently dangerous driving.
"A police pursuit of that type is an extremely dangerous and serious offence and is almost guaranteed to kill you or other people on the road," Mr Brender told Floyd Davies in Albury Local Court.
He was referring specifically to a police pursuit involving the ACT man during which he sped through Gerogery at 124km/h in what was a 60km/h zone.
That incident, which began when police detected Davies travelling at 152km/h on the Hume Freeway at Table Top, did not end until police put down road spikes, for the third time.
The pursuit of the never licensed driver lasted 51 minutes and traveled about 60 kilometres before Davies' unregistered black Honda Civic, with stolen number plates, was brought to a stop.
Police dragged him from the car, left sitting in the middle of the road.
It was November 12, just after 1.30am. Since then, he has been in custody at Junee jail, bail refused.
Davies, 24, will now remain behind bars until November 11, 2020, after Mr Brender imposed a three-year term, with a two-year non-parole period.
Davies pleaded guilty to two counts of police pursuit, possess prohibited drug, receiving property stolen outside NSW and larceny over his offending back in early September, 2015.
The first pursuit occurred after police saw Davies and two other men leave Paddy's bar in Kiewa Street, Albury on September 1.
They watched the trio get in to a black Toyota Prado, reported stolen from Morwell about three weeks earlier, and drive out of the West End Plaza car park.
When police turned on their lights and siren, the vehicle suddenly accelerated.
During the pursuit, the four-wheel-drive hit speeds of 100km/h in a Kiewa Street 60km/h zone, 120km/h in North Street, and up to 175km/h on the Riverina Highway in a return trip to Lake Hume Village.
Davies took police on another pursuit in the Sydney region a few days later.
For the more recent offending, Davies pleaded guilty to a host of charges, including police pursuit, never licensed driver, exceed speed more than 45km/h above the limit and use an unregistered vehicle.
